Colour Your World | #8 Pantone Tangerine

Orange. I love it. And happily ‘tangerine’ is one of Pantone’s spring colours for 2015. I thought about doing an interiors colour story,  to begin with,  but that would be too easy. There are so many beautiful — iconic — things for the home in this shade; Arne Jacobsen’s Swan chair, Orla Keily’s Giant Stem wallpaper, Roberts Revival radios,  to …

It’s quite a retro colour; reminds me of 1950s kitchens and cars (and also toothpaste for some bizarre reason)!

Last week we began looking at Pantone’s spring colour forecast and focussed on the first colour in their palette — Aquamarine — and how we could use it in our homes.
